All you need is:

peanut butter (we love natural peanut butter but substitute any nut or seed butter you love)

gluten-free rolled oats (we like GF Harvest, affiliate link)

shredded coconut (we like Let’s Do Organic, affiliate link)

maple syrup

vanilla extract

mini chocolate chips

chocolate covered candies (we used plain M&Ms)

raisins (optional)

pumpkin seeds (optional)

The raisins and pumpkin seeds are optional but they add in extra flavor, texture and nutrients.

Plus they remind me of gorp– where are my hikers?

One final note, one of my taste testers was skeptical of the pumpkin seeds but loved them! So you could always give it a try in one and see what you think…

Pro tip on natural peanut butter— You are certainly welcome to use any peanut butter you love but we happen to love natural peanut butter.

The only thing about it that I don’t love, is that it often separates while it sits on the store shelves, leaving a layer of oil on top. When this happens, I pour off part of the oil and mix well.

If you leave too much oil in, the bites might not hold their form as well, but if that happens just add in some extra oats of coconut and it will be fine!

They come together in One Bowl and 15 minutes!

It’s just 3 simple steps:

  1. Mix together peanut butter, gluten-free oats, coconut, vanilla extract and maple syrup
  2. Add in and mix to combine chocolate chips, chocolate covered candies and raisins and pumpkin seeds if using
  3. Form in to balls and enjoy!

The mix will hold its form well and be formed into balls immediately.

I usually roll into balls about 1 1/4  inch to 1 1/2 inch in diameter.

And I tend to store them in the refrigerator since they hold their form so well!

They stay in well in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks, if they last that long!

And how cute are are they? And they are SO YUMMY!

Hope you love them as much as we do!

  1. Yummy! I made these this morning for an after school, before volleyball snack for our daughter. We all love them! I put the pumpkin seeds in but left out the raisins. There’s just the right amount of chocolate too! We’ll be making these again!
